Molecular Genetics: This book combines a general overview of diffraction methods with a step-by-step description of the process of a single-crystal X-ray structure determination experiment, from chemical synthesis or expression to phasing and refinement, analysis and quality control. Major techniques in structural biology, X-ray fiber diffraction, Electron diffraction, Electron microscopy, Neutron diffraction, Nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy, Single crystal X-ray crystallography.
The aim of this book is that a non expert can gain some appreciation for the intricacies involved, and in the current state of affairs. The expert meanwhile, can gain a deeper understanding of the topic. Principles of protein structure, Hemoglobin, Platelet adhesion to collagen and Blood clotting.

Structural Biology Reading This note covers the following topics: Author s: Biochemistry and Structural Biology This note covers the following topics: A novel and useful feature is the technical appendages A through F on, for instance, prediction of secondary structure and on assignment of function.
Nevertheless, at times the discussion seems a bit vague as, for example, the discussion of Table A.
This table shows that single, double, and triple carbon—carbon bonds are progressively shorter. Carbon—carbon bonds of order 1.
However, the reference to quantum mechanical calculations and the ordering in the table itself obscures the fact that this table was derived experimentally.
Liljas et al. This is followed, as in most other books of this genre, by a chapter describing the primary and secondary structure of proteins, amino acids and their restricted conformations, polypeptide main-chain dihedral angles, and a brief summary of folding topologies and domain structure. Finally, the relationship between function, structure, and evolution emerges clearly from the previous discussion.
The subsequent chapter on nucleic acid conformation follows the same pattern, starting with the restriction on conformational angles in sugars, secondary structure of DNA and RNA, bulges, junctions and pseudoknots, and culminating with the structure of tRNAs, ribosomes, and ribozymes.
The next, well-written and informative chapter on lipids and membranes completes the basic discussion of the chemistry of biological materials.
Chapter 5 to the final Chapter 16 cover various basic biological processes such as enzymatic catalysis, transcription, translation, apoptosis, protein folding, signal transduction, motility, and immunology with a final chapter on virus structure.
Although the book is copiously illustrated in beautifully executed, colored, computer-drawn figures, some of the mechanistic explanations could have been clearer by the use of easily understood chemical symbols. For instance, the book lacks a series of simple figures explaining the action of the ser-his-asp catalytic triad in proteinases such as trypsin.
It would appear that we cannot yet discard our worn out volumes of Dickerson and Geiss. The amount of information compressed into less than pages is a great achievement and essential for those who wish to understand biological processes at a basic level of molecules, atoms, and their chemistry.
